Babyboomers in their thirties never possessed a collective voice until thirtysomething (1987-1991), a thirteen-time Emmy Award-winning series, captured the essence of their angst. Author Scott Ryan now gives the cast and crew their voice on the making of all 85 episodes.

Revealing behind-the-scenes stories are recalled by Ken Olin, Timothy Busfield, Mel Harris, Melanie Mayron, Peter Horton, Patricia Wettig, Polly Draper, Brandy Alexander, Joseph Dougherty, Liberty Godshall, Jill Gordon, Paul Haggis, Ann Lewis Hamilton, Winnie Holzman, Richard Kramer, Ron Lagomarsino, Ellen S. Pressman, Susan Shilliday, Scott Winant, Kenneth Zunder, Edward Zwick, and Marshall Herskovitz. They remember the episode plots, controversies, and fights with censors in revealing, no-holds-barred detail.
